This is a great graham cracker crust, not dry or crumbly. It is sweet, almost like caramel. I recommend filling it with Recipe #115634. This will make a 9 inch crust but you can easily adjust it to make a taller 10 inch cheesecake crust.
After trying and trying different cheesecake recipes, I formulated one of my own. I do believe this is the perfect cheesecake. Very simple with a wonderful taste. You will need a 10 inch springform pan and to prepare a basic graham cracker crust beforehand.
This is close enough to real thing, although I have never tried it but I imagine that the mixture could be frozen until ready to use --- *note* do not double the recipe as it will not thicken properly, make two separate recipes in two bowls, use only *pure* vanilla extract for this :)
This recipe can be used for all your dessert crepes. You can cook them fresh and use them or better yet make a batch, wrap them in plastic, then foil and freeze them for future use. Have wax paper between the crepes. Dessert fillings will be posted separately. I say 20 crepes this depends on the size and how thin you pour them.Mine are almost paper thin and about the size of a large side plate
These are chewy, fudgy, SUPER EASY cookies that you can probably make right now! I have watched these disappear time and again and everyone is always asking for the recipe. It is almost embarrassing to give it out, it is that easy :) Enjoy! (12/14/06: I wanted to add that Betty Crocker has updated this recipe by adding 1 tsp. vanilla extract, but I don't want to change the original recipe.) *12/22/07: Please see my tips at the end of the recipe! **12/23/08: Betty Crocker has now added a version of the same exact recipe in which the cookie dough balls are rolled in granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar. I've tried this and they're also very good.
I've enjoyed recipes from your wonderful site. Now it's time for me to give one special one to you. This was given to me by a beloved old neighbor lady thirty plus years ago. I hope you and your readership enjoy it as much as my family and friends enjoy this treasured old recipe of mine!
One night I was craving chocolate cake, but we didn't have a mix and I didn't feel like going to the store. I looked on the back of a box of Hershey's Cocoa and found this recipe. It is just a basic chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, but it is DIVINE. My husband and I both LOVE it and think it is the best cake ever. I will never make chocolate cake from a box again.
I was so surprised when I went to check out if these were posted or not. I have made this with my older grandkids and before that with my own kids so I don't remember where I first got this...but give it a try***UPDATE***as you can see by the picture someone tried this recipe. To me, it was a failure, but not on the part of the cook. She was very nice about it, and even told me her family liked it. The problem was the instructions. It is important not to assume that all the ingredients are familiar. The instructions you see now are more concise. The cook offered to have the pictures removed,I said no, let them stand as an example....
